Fave Part of Town/ CDP Theme Day

Franklin Lake in winter

Today is City Daily Photo Theme Day and the theme is "favorite part of town."

Franklin Lake is actually on private property owned by the Franklin Club. I'm not a member so I don't fish there. I love this lake because it's so photogenic throughout the year.

When I think of Canada this is what I imagine. Great photos.

I think it might be my favorite place, too, if I lived there. Looks like it would regenerate the spirit!

Beautiful lake in a great setting. I love the evergreen trees growing right up to the water.

I love the refections in the water.
Let me know when you're visiting the Thomas Foster Memorial, I'll meet you there! Not far away from me. I have been inside a long time ago, it's time for another visit i think!

Francisca said...

Not hard to see why this would be a favorite spot, EG. I find it amusing how many of the CITY Daily Photo folks posted a landscape image today. :-)

Well, you could always join, right?

I've tried to join some clubs, but I'm always reminded of what someone (Groucho Marx?) said: I wouldn't want to be a member of a club that would want me to be a member!) Or something like that.

It is a gorgeous place and your photos are perfection...look at that glassy water surface and those reflections! Yummy!

George said...

The lake is absolutely beautiful in winter and summer. No wonder it's one of your favorite places.

Perfect! My Fave was a lake too!

Not surprised you love it and you've photographed it so beautifully too.

Lynette Killam said...

How beautiful these shots are...the first one with all the luminosity and composition of an oil painting! I loved snowy scenes like that when I lived in Ontario...hard to find them here in rainy B.C....:)

Franklin Lake in winter takes my breath away! Awesome photo! Why is the lake not frozen -- early winter?

Halcyon said...

It is a beautiful lake. I can't wait to come visit EG. It seems there is so much natural beauty up there. :)

clairz said...

I've often thought of shooting the same scene at different times in the year, but haven't gotten around to it yet. I'm awfully glad you have done so, especially since it's a water scene!
